Until the new centres, located on either side of the road where the old water park used to be, open, you've limited to the existing Puerto Rico CC in the bottom of the resort and the Europa Centre high up on West Hill. While both of these centres have a thriving restaurant and bar scene, their shops are a little behind the times.
If you need something like a new t-shirt or sundress, you'll be able to find it in the Puerto Rico CC, but there isn't much choice if you're planning to spend a full day shopping.
In fact, if you want to shop properly, you have to leave the resort and head to one of the places on our top Gran Canaria shopping spots list. While you're at it, read our ultimate guide to Gran Canaria clothes shopping too.
Where to shop close to Puerto Rico
Head west to Puerto de Mogán on a Friday for the big market or a Monday for the craft market and check out the shops by the beach, or head to upmarket Meloneras or the El Tablero shopping centre close to Playa del Inglés.
Or, make a day of it and head to Las Palmas where you'll find some of the best shops in Gran Canaria.
If Las Palmas seems a little far, get a local bus to the Las Terrazas shopping centre by the motorway in Telde for some excellent outlet deals.
